Working With Us - For Us Report 2018

The G21 Refugee and Asylum Seeker Mental Health Project (RAS MH) aimed to implement a Co Design framework that would assist service providers to gain an understanding of the barriers refugees and asylum seekers face accessing mental health services in the Geelong Region.

An Experience Based Co Design (EBCD) approach was identified as the preferred framework for this project. The project revealed that refugees and asylum seekers in the Geelong region face numerous barriers to accessing mental health services. Five of these barriers were prioritized and recommendations developed. It is intended that the recommendations developed with the EBCD framework will inform service provision changes to address these barriers in the Geelong region.  

The Governance Group would like to thank the participants for their time, energy and dedication to the project.
